~Trixie's Tantalizing Animal Tales~ March 13th
Good Morning & happy hump day sweet furiends! Thank you SO much for pouncing on my votey button yesterday & for sharing story time with me! Each vote you leave is a priceless treasure & your comments about what I’ve blogged are deeply appreciated! I’m sending out a big meow of thanks to all of you that have shared your heroic, touching, & special stories of your own with me. Okay kitties…today I’ll continue spinning some heroic animal tales, but this time it’s about incredible felines. These kitties make me proud that I was born a cat & I hope their stories touch your hearts as much as they did mine.
~DEVOTED MOMCAT~ One of most poignant, publicized cat rescuers I found to meow about was a stray calico cat from Brooklyn, (who even has a website and a poem written in her honor). In March/April 1996, with her eyes blistered shut, her paws burned and her coat scorched; a cat, who was later nicknamed SCARLETT for her patches of red fur, darted into a flaming abandoned building in Brooklyn and pulled out her kittens, one by one. Once all the kittens had been rescued, Scarlett conducted a head count, touching each kitten with her nose to make sure they were all there. A 17-year veteran with Ladder Company 175, told reporters, "She ran in and out of that building five times, got them all out, and then started moving them one by one across the street." The firefighter found the cat family outside the building and took them to an animal shelter, where the mother and babies received treatment. Three months after her heroic feat, Scarlett and her four surviving babies were not only well, but were adopted in a blaze of publicity. A sad note: on October 15, 2008, Scarlett passed away. Her life and times can be found on her own Wikipedia page.
Next up is the…~FELINE ALARM~ SUSIE, an orange tabby from Oklahoma City, alerted her 100-year-old human guardian, Lois, to a smoldering fire one evening in May 1998. Lois had just gotten to sleep and awoke to a shrill screech. As she opened her eyes she saw Susie sitting hunched beside her, fur on end, yowling furiously. Susie then pounced on her chest, swiping her with the soft pad of her paw, which she assumed was Susie's way of telling her that she wanted to go out, so she led her downstairs and out the door. Susie bolted back in, meowing more desperately than before, as if to tell Lois something. As Lois turned, she saw that the house was burning. A fire had started in an electric blanket which had burned a hole in her mattress. Just a few more minutes and the bed would have burst into flames, with her in it.

Give those kitties a loud round of applause dear furiends because they’re both very special! Do I hear a few soft cries because if I do then you’re in good company! Thank you from the bottom of my little heart for the sweet meows & the precious votes you’ve been sending my way each day.

Big hugs,
